Hemp Building Workshop: Masonville, CO
June 4, 2016 - June 5, 2016$125 – $300
Want to learn how to build a hemp building??? Here’s your chance…
You will learn everything you need to know to create your own 20′ geodesic dome. Hands on learning will give you experience at mixing the hemp correctly and applying it so that you get the highest R rating possible. You will learn how to run sleeves for electricity, but this structure is simple and will not involve plumbing or lighting. There will be future builds at Sunrise Ranch to learn more complicated skills.
The build will take place at Janet Center’s home. It is 5 miles past the Masonville Mercantile up the Buckhorn. You will ascend a long steep hill and see a tan house with a large shed on the left. Her drive is the next right and there is a sign with the address.
On JUNE 4TH-5TH SAT. 9:00AM TIL SUN-5PM
Repairing the foundation and framing the wooden geodesic dome.
JUNE 11-12TH SAT 9:00AM TIL SUNDAY NIGHTFALL
Creating shuttering and hemping the building
